Hi, sorry to come back with this problem again...

 I have compiled the latest CVS version of gnokii but I still cannot get anything good from --getsms command chinese chars appears unreadable.

I've answered to your question and maybe found a clue from an old thread about 3110c specific probelm with SMS encoding, I tried without success to use the patch (must be for an older version) but cannot go more because of my lack of programming skills :(

First of all, please try CVS version. We've been fixing there some SMS
issues for new series40 phones.

I tried, but it's still the same problem, i'm able to read chinese for exemple when  retrieving the phonebook contacts

gnokii --getphonebook ME 1 end  (this works without problem)

Are they shown correctly in the phone? I belive so, but please confirm.

Yes they display well on my phone (3110c)

Apparently this is the problem. However message doesn't look unicode neither.

I have no clue at first sight...

I found an old thread on osdir about 3110c encoding problem, I tried the patch but it didn't work, I guess it was on an old version... I don't have any good development skill but if you guide me I'm more than willing to try to test and find out the problem...

(this is the address showing the patch on osdir which is not accessible from china...)

by any chance could it give you any clue?

Thanks a lot for your help!!
